Hello everybody! Been awhile since I've been on here writing a blog post! Want to know why? I landed a GREAT gig as the afternoon dj and Program Director for 97.5 COOL FM in Tri-Cities. I started last March and with the way things were going in real estate I decided this would be ALOT of fun to do and sell some real estate too! As they say if you want to make God laugh tell him your plan. I ended up selling 14 homes in 2009 and had a blast! It looks like 2010 is shaping up to be a busy year. I can see alot of folks are starting to clamour to make a move for the tax credits. Up to $8,000 for First Time homebuyers and up to $6500 for folks that have owned their home for the last 5 years. Tri-Cities is REALLY active right now! I had a client that wrote an offer on a house priced $20,000 un...

Many retirees, when preparing for the beginning of the next phase of their lives, begin the process of retirement  by deciding where they will live. Do they want to stay where they've had their careers, near established friends, close to the kids and grandkids or move closer to them? Is temperate climate important, or do they plan on travelling a lot?For many, the most important question really falls to one. How do we stretch our budget to last the rest of our sunset years?If the last question is the most important, yet you don't want to settle for a one-bedroom walkup in a mid-west suburb, then the latest issue of US News and World Report is a good guide.

Recently, I've been working with a buyer who has demonstrated very high personal ethics.  He says he will call and he does.  He says he'll have a decision by tomorrow and he does.  It blows me away!  I have the expectation of my fellow REALTORS to have this same ethic.  But, should I? When I was just getting started in the business world, someone whom I had a great deal of respect for told me to keep my expectations high and people would perform to that level.  I've discovered, of course, that this is not always the case, but it does keep my expectations of myself rather high.  You see, when you expect a certain level of professionalism and it is performed, you build trust.  Trust is one of the reasons we get referrals! So, when an agent says, "I'll get back to you today."  My expectati...

With the onset of spring the Tri Cities WA real estate market has begun to see signs of heating up. But for those still on the sidelines, I thought it would be important to see just what the new $8000 First-time home buyer tax credit can do. Many people have asked emailed me at the Tri City Home Team or called and asked about the program. Quite a few wanted to know how they could use it for a down payment. Well, the answer is, you can't. BUT, I do have a slick way of accessing the credit after you've purchased your home- and I mean getting your hands on it within an estimated 10-12 weeks after you've closed on your new Tri City home. By now, most of us have filed our 2008 tax returns and, for many of us, have written a check to the man in the red,white and blue top hat. So here's a stra...

It is of no question that Country Ridge properties are in demand. At present, lots are already ninety-eight percent accommodated by residential homes, so any real estate property up for grabs is truly gold. Country Ridge is a very warm community within the City of Richland and a fair-sized population of less than 400 family homes with a well organized home owners support. Parks and other common areas for residents inside the subdivision are around eleven hectares, all of which are highly maintained, making it a very good candidate for raising a family of any type. Country Ridge is also a most sensible location for one to live in with Richland being of easy access to other Tri-City areas thru its highway system, and Richland itself is full of endless choices for recreational activities, ...

Once you have purchased your first home, your next investment should be an income-producing real estate. Income properties are not just limited to single-family homes; it can be commercial property as well. Some investors prefer shopping centers, others warehouses. The possibilities are endless. There are many tax benefits involved in owning your own home. The pride in owning your own property is unequaled. Such homes can be a single-family home, mobile home, condominium, apartment, or even a houseboat. A basic rule of investing in income property is to never buy for the tax benefits alone. If a property is not sound without the tax benefits, chances are it is not a wise investment. The tax breaks involved in owning income property should be viewed only as an added bonus. These bonuses ...
